McDonald's S'pore Stops Offering Whipped Cream For Frappés, Drink With Less Guilt

McDonald’s Discontinues Whipped Cream For Frappés From 12 Oct

Most people would be used to seeing their frappés topped with whipped cream for that extra sweetness.

In response to MS News’ queries, a McDonald’s Singapore spokesperson explained that the decision was made to lower the overall saturated fat content of their beverages.

The spokesperson also shared that the move was partly driven by their observation that more customers are ordering their frappés without whipped cream.

They assured customers that the decision “was not taken lightly” and hoped they’d still enjoy the drinks albeit with the tweak.

Change not well-received among netizens

Shortly after McDonald’s announced the move, netizens did not seem to take well to the news.

A Facebook user pointed out that a frappé without whipped cream is nothing but an ice-blended drink.

Another user said that customers should be offered the choice of frappés with or without whipped cream.
